[ cheers and applause ] thanksgiving -- it's thanksgiving in canada. it's very similar to our thanksgiving, everybody gathers for a big dinner and then they go around the table and say what they're grateful aboot. [ laughter ] yesterday morning, pope benedict named five new saints to the catholic church, though some are questioning whether obama really deserved it. [ laughter ] this is scary, yesterday israel threatened to attack iran if international sanctions are not placed by christmas. to which people in both nations said, "um, what's christmas?" [ laughter ] we'll get on that. former illinois governor rod blagojevich will make an appearance on donald trump's "celebrity apprentice." part of trump's plan to make his own hair look normal. [ laughter ] "it's genius. why haven't i done this earlier?" [ cheers and applause ] a company in massachusetts has created a flying car that can change from a plane into a car in less than a minute. pretty amazing.
it's kind of cool. captain sully sullenberger said, "big deal, i changed a plane into a boat. it can be done." [ laughter ] rapper, soulja boy, was arrested in atlanta last week after trying to run away from the police when they broke up his illegal video shoot. police knew it was soulja boy because he ran away like this -- [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's how he ran. why would you run that way? >> steve: you'd think there'd be a faster method to escape. >> jimmy: i can't dance at all, yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] retailers are predicting that the top selling halloween costume for men this year will be bernie madoff. and for girls, slutty bernie madoff. [ laughter ] that'd be interesting. the chicago cubs declared bankruptcy today. a move that they say will help them sell the team as part of the new cash for clunkers program.
[ laughter ] i read some good news, congratulations to heidi klum who gave birth to her fourth child on friday. it's a girl. congratulations to her and seal as well. congratulations, guys. the delivery was incredible, one day it was in, and the next, it was out. [ laughter ] a former flight attendant on oprah winfrey's private jet is suing oprah. did you hear about this? because she was accused, she was fired for having sex on the jet. so she did become the first member of the oprah mile-high book club. [ laughter ] so, that was great. small club. [ laughter ] a man in north carolina was arrested for hiding 929 gallons of moonshine under a shed. [ scattered applause ] police are charging him with five counts of being a 1930s hobo. [ laughter ] authorities say that if no one comes around to take the
responsibility in the next five days, party in jebediah's shed. [ laughter ] i read that roman polanski is extremely depressed after spending just two weeks in jail. when asked where he'd be more comfortable he was like, "juvie?" [ audience ohs ] [ cheers and applause ] you asked me. don't ask me, if you don't want an answer. that was you guys. and finally, a 7-year-old boy in britain brought his 2,000-pound bull to class for bring your pet to school day. everybody had a good time except the kid who wore red. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: what a show. a beautiful weekend it was here
in new york. i didn't do anything this weekend really big, i just kind of stayed at my house and i played this video game "uncharted ii," for playstation. anyone have that? well, it's not out yet, i don't think. is it? [ laughter ] is anyone here from the future? [ laughter ] i played this game, and man, this game is off of the charts. it's like you're playing, like, an "indiana jones" movie type of thing but you're controlling -- and it's scored and i was just totally lost. and my wife was like, "get a life." [ laughter ] but i was, like, just entranced with it. i did that all week. and then i watched the yankees. [ cheers and applause ] they did great. swept, swept. it happened so fast. it was crazy. how fast it goes, 170, 160-something games and then playoffs and then off to the next thing. it was quick. it was fun and then i went to see "saturday night live." which was good. i saw that. yeah, actually i had a pretty busy weekend the more i think about it.
[ laughter ] i thought i did nothing, this helps me on mondays. i can tell actually what i did do. you know what i did do? i caught up on my tivo, because i don't have a chance to watch television much when i'm at home. i mean when i'm at work during the week. so, when i go home, i just pass out drunk. [ laughter ] but then, over the weekend, i had nothing to do, so i just watched every single show and everything. and i watched "amazing race," "biggest loser." yeah, i watched all of the reality shows. because my wife is obsessed with those things. "amazing race" was sad last night. anyone see that? heartbreaking, it was just sad. no one died or anything. it was just sad. [ laughter ] i was in a sentimental mood. i watched "biggest loser." and i always watch "biggest loser." this happens to me all the time, i watch it and i ordered some healthy food, delivery. because i didn't feel like cooking, didn't want to do anything this weekend. so, the delivery guy got lost or something like that. he didn't understand what i was saying, the address, i don't know what i was talking about. so, i go, "okay." i just cancelled the order. and i just go, "screw it, i'm just going to get a pizza." so, i got a pizza. and i'm sitting there watching "biggest loser", like -- "look at these people." [ laughter ] "they got no self control, these people."
[ laughter ] "they eat too much." grease dripping all over my fat body. [ laughter ] >> steve: where was your shirt? >> jimmy: right, i shirtless, yeah. [ laughter ] that's the way i watch all of my shows, yeah, yeah. but tonight, this is a good show right here. from the "today" show, the lovely kathie lee gifford is here. [ cheers and applause ] oh, i love kathie lee gifford. from the new film, "the stepfather," and star of the hit show "gossip girl," penn badgley is joining us. [ cheers and applause ] yeah, he's a good guy. and we got some good music tonight from love and theft, everybody. it's going to be great tonight. [ cheers and applause ] they're good. now, we're checking our email to the show. a lot of people have been emailing our show. a couple weeks ago, kirk from the roots talked about his birthday plans. take a look. >> jimmy: happy birthday, once again, to captain kirk over there. kirk, happy birthday.

[ cheers and applause ] it's my birthday! put the kids to bed and put on the marvin gaye. [ cheers ] >> jimmy: it was a little, like, too much information there. i was like, just, "what are you going to do on your birthday?"

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: just clarify it. >> he's got his hands full, you can tell. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. kathie lee, i have to say, i had the biggest crush on you in high school. and i always wanted to send you something or just tell you that. and i think that i wrote you a letter and i went to see the show a few times. >> are you kidding me? >> jimmy: no, i'm deadly serious. >> because it's so sad. >> jimmy: what are you talking about? [ laughter ] >> come on, of all of the people out there you can have crushes on, you picked me. did you go to therapy for it? >> jimmy: no, i loved you! i thought that you were very funny in the morning and that was my thing. i was like, "i love kathie lee gifford." i went to see the show once with my friend gerard and i said i was just trying to meet you, but, you know, it was very quick. you were busy, you were working. >> and i'm rude to people in general, anyway. >> jimmy: no, you were very, very nice.
but i had this great plan, i said, "look, when they ask that trivia question. >> right. >> jimmy: on the phone. you know, you always share with someone who's sitting in the seat. i go, "no matter what seat, stand up and wave." so, like, if they said, "well, thank you, you won. what seat?" and they're like, "seat 36." i go, "we just stand up." "oh, my god! this is it." and so, we did it. >> really? >> jimmy: and the camera came up to us and we got on tv. but that's about it. [ laughter ] and you didn't notice. >> and what, you were like, 12 years old or something? >> jimmy: no, i don't know what i was. >> because, see, i do the math. >> jimmy: my voice changed. i mean, i had a deep voice. >> oh, so, you were, like, manly. >> jimmy: yes, absolutely. it was much deeper. it was deeper than it is now. [ laughter ] >> no, because my big break came on a show in 1977, called "name that tune." >> jimmy: right. >> so, that's 32 years ago. and you are -- how old are you? >> jimmy: i'm 35. >> do you know how depressing that is for a woman? [ laughter ] no, honestly.
i guess it's cool. >> jimmy: but you're so fun. >> well, thank you. but just because you get doesn't mean you're not fun anymore. >> jimmy: but you're gorgeous, too. >> but that's the other thing, that's kind of -- thank you. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: am i making you blush? >> i don't know what to say! you're making me blush! >> jimmy: i'm sorry, i'm sorry. >> i mean, come on. i'm an old lady. and i'm bloated right now. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: bloated right now. >> and i can't get over that guy's sexy song. [ laughter ] but anyway -- >> jimmy: there's a lot of sex going on tonight. >> i know. >> jimmy: it's very -- yeah. i was going to ask you about this thing. i think it was "tv guide" or something like that, gave you -- it was, like, the most gorgeous woman in the -- yeah. and i was probably voting. >> well, maybe you're the reason i won. back in -- i think cody was one year old, so it was, like, 1991, they had the most beautiful woman on television contest for "tv guide." my assistant called me up on a friday and said, "there's good news and bad news." i said, "what's the good news?" she says, "you've been nominated." after i fell off the floor i said, "well, what's the bad news?" she goes, "you're number 49 out of 50." [ laughter ] so, i figured, "you know what? there's no way i'm ever going to win this thing." and rightfully so, you know. because of jaclyn smith and all those people were on television back then. i said, so i said, "i'm going to
have some fun with this." called up the props guys, bobby orsillo, still there. i said, "bobby, get me an apple pie." so, monday, came on, and i held up a flag and a picture of cody and the apple, i said, "a vote for me is a vote for america, motherhood and the american way." or something like that. [ laughter ] the next day, i said, "i got to keep this going." i baked cookies. it would be, like, i baked cookies for everybody. the third day, it's a wednesday by now, frank drives in a convertible into the stage with me waving in the back with cody. with his diaper on the back, saying -- you know, i put his little butt to the camera. i did. [ laughter ] and it said, "vote for my mom, or something like that. [ laughter ] i was having a little fun. >> jimmy: you sued cody's but? >> i used his butt. >> jimmy: unbelievable. >> that's the privilege of a mother. i cleant up, i can e it. [ laughter ] so, anyway he says -- it turns out that by tuesday, i had won to contest by 15,000 vote >> jimmy: yes! [ cheers and applause ] >> i beat jaclyn smith. >> jimmy: yes, finally.
>> no, b. they were not happy that i had beaten jaclyn smith by 15,000 votes i sent her a huge bouquet of flowers, "i'm so sorry, i had a little fun with the contest and i'm sorry i beat you so badly." [ laughter ] but i said, "to the real most beautiful woman on tv, sorry, love, kathie lee." or something like that. well, anyway, they wereot amused. they had all these gorgeous women on the cover when it came out, "are these the most gorgeous people on tv?" no, they open it up, you know, lik towards the back. there's this gnarly picture of me, i won it. but you know what they didn't ge, jimmy? they didn't get the power of television. that's what lille ball would have done. that's what different people would do. that's, you know, you're in on the joke, you know. >> jimmy: yeah, exacy. it's just so much fun. i mean, then you left us for a little bit. you went and did movies and, you know, you came out with records. >> everything. and theater, a lot of theatre work. but then came back as the oldest person at the "today" show except for willard scott. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's not how we see
you. you're on the fourth hour of "today" show? >> yes, the happy hour we like to call it. >> the happy hour -- it is, it . it's super fun. i love you. how hoda? >> hoda woman's awesome. she's fantastic. >> jimmy: i watch you all the time,nd you're always talking about her feet. you love her feet. >> she has the most gorgeous feet. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i'm not usually jealous of women's parts -- [ laughter ] well, some. [ laughter ] but i am jealous, nick, when she's on, ke her come barefoot, she's goingo drive you guys crazy. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. [ cheers ] >> those guys, they got mor foot fetishes up there. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: why is -- >> well, because i was not blessed with pretty feet. my mother's toes, every one of em isn a different zip code. [ laughter ] feet like that -- yeah. i id, "mom, you kn, those will come in handy at halloween, you know." but, so, she never got the surgery and her grandmother's feet were like -- it's hereditary. then you throw in these kind of
bies, look at these. [ cheers ] yeah, yeah! >> jimmy: yeah, right there, yeah. >> you know what these are ,besides incredibly way too expensive? these, ladies and gentlemen, these are stupid. [ laughter ] they're stupid. you're an accident waiting to happen. so, i had both my -- after 44 years in show business, i had both of my feet operad on by a lovely zimbabwean surgeon. dr. michael clai and i wanted to kill his zimbabwean neck. [ laughter ] i was doing the crab crawl everywhere. i served thanksgiving dinner doing the crab walk. >> jimmy: you could not walk? >> no, i could not walk. it was the most agonizing thing. imagine putting all of your weight -- what is it? 12pounds? >> jimmy: thank you.

[ cheers and applause ] >> yeah, it's huge. >> jimmy: you're great in it, too. >> yeah, thank you, i appreciate that. >> and the city's just completely embraced "gossip girl." >> it has. >> jimmy: what a place to have it set. to shoot it and have it set in new york. >> well, this is kind of a symbol of that. i mean, the fact that i am on this and i actually know you, kind of. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. >> and it's just been an incredible experience, the way they have embraced us. and the respect that we get, especially, too, because we are a young show. >> jimmy: i heard that you went to the palace -- and i know you date blake. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: and you and blake went to the palace hotel, right? >> the palace hotel is where we shoot a lot of the show. >> jimmy: and they have a sandwich called the -- what is it called? >> they called it "the gossip girl grilled cheese sandwich", or something long. >> jimmy: it really just rolls off of the tongue. "can i order the 'gossip girl' grilled cheese sandwich?" >> so i just went in, i was like, "you should call it the
gossip grill." and they were like, "okay." and they went back and they typed it up and gave me a new menu to take home. and they just changed it right there. >> jimmy: so you now have a sandwich -- >> that i sort of named. you know, i helped them along the way, and it's still called that. >> jimmy: you took it home? >> yeah, why not? they gave it to me. i put it up on my microwave. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: that's a sign of respect. you put it up there. i had something at the improv. i used to work, do standup at the improv and they named a meatloaf after me for -- >> for like a week? [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, they keep naming it after the comedians, week by week. it was like ray romano's chicken. and then jimmy fallon's meatloaf. [ laughter ] >> how long ago was that? >> jimmy: it was probably about 1996, or something like that. but still have that menu, yeah. and i think my parents were going to frame it at one point. you're not framing the jimmy fallon meatloaf menu. it's ridiculous. [ light laughter ] but i want to talk about -- you're doing movies as well. "the stepfather," scary movie.
i mean, this is a frightening horror movie that's coming out halloween. >> it is. >> jimmy: it's coming out this weekend, right? >> it comes out this friday. >> jimmy: this is, everyone's talking about this. it's about a guy who just starts marrying other people's families just so he can kill them? >> yeah, well the idea is, he probably doesn't want to kill them going into it, but he's a psychopath and he wants them to live up to a certain standard. and i guess it's that. they never do because he has like this "leave it to beaver" ideal in his head that they never meet. so, i play a kid who comes back from military school. he's slightly reformed, and he just sees immediately that he's very strange. and he's suspicious. and it becomes a sort of head to head. >> jimmy: it's a scary thing. >> yeah. >> jimmy: well, everyone's looking forward to it. we actually have a clip of it. >> oh, you do? >> jimmy: so do you know what this scene is? >> i think it's -- it's the first scene we shot in the movie, actually. >> jimmy: really? >> the first scene we shot, and there is tequila involved. there we go. >> jimmy: there we go, clip of the movie "the stepfather." >> i know this must be a bit of a
shock, your mom and me getting married and all. but i want you to know, i want us to be a real family. >> it's either that or we have nothing. >> oh, okay, touche. so, i get a little corny sometimes. i meant what i said, you just let me handle your mother. and i'll make sure you stay right here, where you belong. no more military school. we're gonna put this family back together, you and me, father and son. >> stepfather. >> stepfather. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah, creepy, right? creepy, dude. i like it. penn badgley. "the stepfather" is in theaters this friday. "gossip girl" airs monday at 9 p.m. on the cw. love and theft perform next, come on back! [ cheers and applause ] ♪
